Manic Depression

Manic depressionManic depression is a serious mental illness that is more commonly known as bipolar disorder.  People with this mood disorder go through two distinct periods - depression and mania. Both of these parts of manic depression are difficult to deal with, which is why treatment is so important. The dangers of manic depression are numerous because of the two extreme emotional states that people with the mental illness go through. Today, online therapy exists that can help with manic depression.

Symptoms of Manic Depression 

These are some of the common signs for manic depression:

  • Mood swings - from depression to anger and mania and back
  • Trouble sleeping - sleeping too little when experiencing mania or sleeping too much when experiencing depression
  • An increased sense of self-worth - during periods of mania

As you can see, some of these symptoms are the same for depression and mania. In manic depression, symptoms of both are going to appear. This is just one reason this mental disorder is so dangerous.

Dangers of Manic Depression 

When it comes to manic depression, dangers exist to the person who has the mental illness as well as all the people around them. From health issues brought on by the periods of mania to suicidal thoughts (or even attempts) during depression, there are many real risks to manic depression. Because of these negative situations that might arise, it is important to carefully consider treatment for manic depression.
